Creature Commandos is an upcoming adult animated superhero series about a black-ops team of monstrous criminals run by Amanda Waller. Created by DC Studios creative head James Gunn, it will premiere on Max as the first animated series in the new DC Universe.




  • Creature Commandos will be the first project in "Chapter 1: Gods and Monsters", the first wave of projects in the DC Universe.
  • This is the first TV series produced by DC Studios since its inception, with earlier series having been adopted by DC Studios in late 2022.
  • Creator James Gunn has stated the series will take inspiration from J.M. DeMatteis' original stories about the team in Weird War Tales.
  • The series features characters from Gunn's first DC project, The Suicide Squad, but that film's canonicity to the DC Universe is currently unclear, with James Gunn saying a "rough memory" of the events of The Suicide Squad and season 1 of Peacemaker having happened in the new DCU.
